I have a need, 'a need for speed.' Okay, maybe not. But I do have needs, dark sexy needs-- oh damn, the point, yes the point. I have a specific need. I need something to chop videofiles up with, stick it them together again, re-encode them to a reasonable sized format and maybe scrub some music in there. Erm, is there any?

Thanks :)

Well, Windows Movie Maker will do exactly that (I have done it several times with it). All the other movie makers I have used were just included OEM with various things I bought (DVD burner had one, motherboard had one, video card had one, and NVTV card had one) so I don't know of any free ones you can download.

Not quite sure, but ask PropheticKarma, she's been doing that kind of stuff.

Sourceforge Have a look on that. I've never used video editing software other than a few times to see what it can do, but I do know that Windows Movie Maker does stuff like that. If you use Linux, or just don't want to support M$, try that search on Sourceforge - it always yeilds good results.

There is VirtualDub (Windows only), and DScaler.

Jahshaka (cross-platform) looks good. Review - Official Site -

Kino(Linux only), and Cinelerra (Linux only) have gotten good reviews.
